important may be at this moment, the state of florida already 41% of precincts reporting because they do so automatically, and largely because -- there are two times in florida. the eastern time, we all know this from the 2000 election, the eastern time zone has been closed for an hour. the panhandle, which means fort walton beach, panama city, pensacola, all the counties around the panhandle had just closed, so their numbers are not yet in. the old saying about florida is the for the north you go, the father southern you get, which means the panhandle is republican territory. the southeast part of the status democratic territory. what decides florida is the interstate corridor that stretches from tampa to orlando and all the way to daytona beach and some small communities in between. that area there will decide florida. that area is in. the panhandle is just coming in. let's look at florida again. it is lopsided at the moment. you can see or you will be able to see in a moment that in a state of florida with 41% of precincts reported, there is a lopsided lead at the moment for barack obama
.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was cold out and thinking back four years ago and thinking about everyone turning out for him last night. he is hoping for big turn-outs in big battlegrounds. i got off the phone with one of the president's senior
as a lead blocker. he has not carried the ball or a pass thrown to him but when florida needs to run the football, he has been an outstanding lead blocker. >> brad: 250-pounder out of wesley chapel, florida. on the ground again. positive yardage again. i guess when will muschamp told holly going into the locker room at halftime, we can run on anybody because we feel like we have run on better defenses this year, right now, when they need it, they are grinding out chunks. 15 yards on that one. >> todd: this is very similar to what they did against lsu earlier in the year. another great defense. they ran the ball 58 times in that game and they only threw 13 passes. and in the second half, they wore down the lsu defense. that is what it looks like they are doing tonight as well. >> brad: this team will be on its way back to gainesville when notre dame and usc are playing. as far as watching that game as a team, that's pretty doubtful, but i'm sure they will watch what they can when they get back home. 2:30 remaining here as we check in with robert flores. >> here is an all-american play
and florida. >> the northern virginia area and virginia, i mention those states because they are the first to have closed on the east coast in terms of the battleground states. we will look at those areas where the president's numbers should be high in hoping that they actually are. >>> specifically woodall says the campaign will be looking the early numbers in minorities, that could be a gauge for the night ahead. coming up, we will talk to the top democratic leader in the state of california who's attending tonight's event. that's attorney general harris in chicago. ken prichard, channel 2 news. >>> getting results from back east. ken and heather are watching those with the latest returns. >> we have fight -- five states that brings mitt romney 3 electoral votes. indiana went to president obama four years but not this time, mitt romney has been declared the winner of indiana, 55 to 45%. take a look at kentucky, another win for mitt romney, 59 to 41%. again, no surprises here. these are states that didn't turn out any differently than projected. >> let's take another look at another stat
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a

to the president coming up next hour. millions of americans have already voted in places like florida, ohio, and in georgia. but that is just a fraction of the total, which makes the next three days pretty darn important for the candidates. joining me now, as she does at this time every week, is cnn contributor maria cardona. and from miami this morning, cnn contributor anna navarro. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> maria, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're going to go into a nose spin and we don't want to suffer from political schizophrenia. my advice is that we don't obsess about polls because it really could lead to temporary insanity between now and november 6th. i just saw two polls last night from florida. one mitt romney six points up on barack obama, and the sec

. >> provisional ballots could be a four-letter word in the coming days. >> that's right. >>> florida, another critical battle ground state. the campaign's final days were marked by controversy over the state's early voting. if it's clear if you do the math, for mitt romney to become president, he needs to win in florida. we're joined by ashleigh banfield in miami. good morning. >> the last republican president to actually take the white house without taking florida was warren harding back in '24. i suppose there's a first time to change that trend. john, 829 precincts in miami-dade and i'm just at one of them. i'm here two hours early. it's dark, it's lovely out. take a look behind me, though. are you ready for this? two hours until the polls open and we've already got a line of several people. i had a quick chat with some of them, john. already some of these people have waited in early voting lines for six hours. so they are very keen to get going. i want to show you quickly as i give you stats on some of the early voting by the way. we have 11.4 million registered voters in florida. we have

in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
. among them, florida, a state of keen interest to you. >> some of the stuff that they were talking about. that is clearly a swing state that romney had to win. the numbers, an increasing share, it shows romney with a slight lead. this is is shown that obama is winning florida. they have not declared that. those coming out of the polls, 52% to 48%, they are for obama. and romney, he would then have to have whatever is left, including ohio. obama is going to squeak out a victory in florida. that would really possibly have meeting. i think in terms of the issue of what chris and bob have been talking about, i think the occupy movement, to some extent -- to some extent, it really did backbone to the democratic party to make the fight for taxing the rich against the 1%. it gave the obama campaign the realization that, yes, they could possibly hobble together a winning combination by a populist campaign. my fear now is the fiscal cliff, where there is going to be immense pressures on obama and on the democratic party to make all kinds of concessions in an effort to build together a budget, a f

big states: ohio, florida, and virginia. ohio being number one. i think florida is a republican state with 29 electoral votes and that is why they spent with ohio as 18 and that is why they have gone after the 13 electoral votes in virginia. hadn't gone democratic since 1964. linden banees johnson wanted it. sixty% he got in northern virginia. the bellweather counties or prince william and low den. he got 58% in prince william, in 2009, the republican mcdonald did very well in the southwest. the democrats are getting clobbered in cold country and they have to concentrate in getting out the african- american vote, which is very large, the same level of enthusiasm. i heard of all of the state battleground polls, this is a tie. it's going to be contested to the end. >> when you look at both of these campaigns tonight, the barack obama and mitt romney facades, when the staffers go to bed tonight, what is the biggest concern for obama and romney? >> the biggest concern for obama is independent voters neither democrats or republicans. romney was way ahead. you remember, tom, i discussed he
